Charley Mansel removed from Florence, Goodhue county, to Crookston, last spring. On the morning of December 28th, he went out hunting, expecting to return the same evening. His brother at Frontenac has been informed that Charley has been missing ever since, and is supposed to have perished in the storm which occurred on that day. [Lake City Leader]

This Week Mr. Mansel came into the office and showed us the above clipped from the Leader, and says that on that day did not find snow enough to loose anything, and also that he has not seen a snow storm since he came up to this county. Those living in the southern part of the State, think when they have a little snow there, that we, up on the upper edge, must be completely buried, which is not the case. Come up to Marshall Co., if you want to escape the blockades and snow storms and where they raise 40 bushels to the acre.
